U.S. Wants Rights To Israel's Iron Dome
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has conditioned aid for Israeli
missile and rocket defense to propriety rights in the new Iron Dome system.
Congress has stipulated that U.S. aid for the production of Israeli
missile defense systems would be linked to access to technology. The House
Armed Services strategic forces subcommittee, in a directive to the Missile
Defense Agency, has approved $680 million for the Iron Dome, designed to
intercept missiles and rockets with a range of up to 70 kilometers.
